Chef Steph has been leading the Warriors bid to the playoffs this season. He is averaging 30.7 points with 4.6 rebounds, and 3.9 assists, all while shooting 48.8% from the field. There have been doubts and concerns about the Warriors relying so much on him for their wins. With Draymond out and a less-than-efficient Klay Thompson, the fans have no hope but to wish that Curry stays healthy through this all.
